    I mean sure, but he’s MLB ready now, and the Jays have a decent chance at the playoffs. Don’t forget, he’s 23 and SP with high velocity don’t exactly have a long shelf life.

    Also, keeping maybe the best pitching prospect in the league off the team for the entire 2020 season when he's 23, already reached AAA last year and pitched great, has nowhere else to play this year, and the Jays could really use him in the rotation, THEN keeping him down the first few weeks of 2021 and calling him up right after the service time cutoff seems like it would be the most blatant abuse of the system we've seen and probably a slam dunk grievance win for Pearson.

    I do think when Montoyo was hired he was a placemat. I truly believe they weren’t looking long term.

    MLB making up rules as they go. Wait for some more "creative" thinking in the coming weeks. :thumbd:

    Sucks they do not play this weekend but so far it has been a fairly good start. Pitching has been fairly good outside a few players. The younger pitchers look very good.

    Vlad needs to get going. He is still young and he has a lot of time but the team does need him to contribute offensively much more than he has been.

    Hatch looks like he could be a real find.

    KLaw doesn't like him so he's a guaranteed star.

    So Yamaguchi cost us the win yesterday? Last I checked you can’t win if you can’t score. Start pointing blame where it belongs. The bats have sucked ass outside Teoscar. Maybe Gurriel.

    Someone should show him video of Biggio's HRs this year and see if it triggers him.

    How about a 'beat the ball off home plate' competition? Need to get Vladdy involved somehow.

    I think we could win that. As long as Homerun derby Vladdy shows up.

    Maybe Vladdy Faterrero could use the days off to work on his conditioning!

    I have no problems at all with 7 inning double headers...Hope they incorporate at least one a week next year....More days off or a shorter season, preferably the latter so the playoffs can start sooner.
